    I was taking pics of bees and some birds today. This morning there were three birds in my yard and I'm wondering what kind they are. I'm in Central FL. They flew onto the telephone wires. I see them all the time, they're cute! One has something hanging from his foot

    Also here's a green bee. I've never seen one before. Is it infact a bee or some sort of waspe or hornet? I've seen green hornets here, but they didn't look like this. What is it?

    The bird looks like an Ibis. But I'm not positive.

    The bee...I've seen those but I don't know that either. I'm not too smart today.

    Many Halictid (sweat) bees are green. That almost certainly is one. They nest in the ground, don't really sting, and are beautiful.

    Yep, definitely an ibis. My folks are in Central FL and routinely get them wandering across the lawn.
